Children with Anna Philhower:

John and Anna may have immigrated to Putnam County, Indiana, along with the Squire Boone family from Harrison County, Indiana, or may have followed the Boone family a year or two later. Then, in 1853 the Nutt family emigrated from Indiana to Douglas Township, Boone County, Iowa. The Nutts and Boones were very close friends and neighbors in the 1800’s and still are today, with many still living in the same townships in Boone County, Iowa. Anna Philhower’s father had brought his family by waterway on a raft from New Jersey to Ohio, where Anna married John Nutt by 1831. About 1836, when Anna and John had four children, they loaded the family into a covered wagon and moved to southern Indiana.
